Plas Penucha

AELWYD A GYMHELL 'A Welcoming Hearth Beckons'

This is the translation of the Welsh message carved in the oak beam above the fireplace that greets you in the reception hall at Plas Penucha. This unique farmhouse has been in the family of the owner since it was built over four hundred years ago during the reign of Elizabeth I. (Indeed, there was a house on this site even before that time.) The house is situated within a large garden surrounded by farmland and looking towards the Clwydian hills.

The dining room and lounge are both situated in the oldest part of the house - the one built over an old spring and the other with Elizabethan panelling. Plas Penucha is two miles from Caerwys, the smallest town in the country and birthplace of the National Eisteddfod of Wales, and six miles from St. Asaph, with the smallest medieval Cathedral in the country. It is in an extremely convenient position for touring North Wales. To the east are the cities of Chester and Liverpool together with the Wirral Peninsula. While in the opposite direction, the whole of the North Wales coast, the Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey, Llangollen and the Vale of Clwyd are all within easy reach.
